Librarian, Blogger, Dreamer…
The application of web 2.0 tools in Libraries (some termed it as “Library 2.0”) is not new for many. But, when CBSE decided to ponder upon it, that must be special. I had invited by the Board on 12 November 2013 to deliver a presentation on Library 2.0, especially on what my Library achieved through the effective integration of web 2.0 tools. Dr. Sadhana Parashar, Professor and Director (ART & I) shared her thoughts on the topic along with Dr. B. N. Singh, Director/Librarian, CBSE.
The presentation was well received and followed by a brain storming session on redesigning the CBSE Library website. There was a brief meeting with Shri Vineet Joshi IAS, Chairman, CBSE . During the meeting he appreciated the works done by our Library and suggested to have more discussion followed by integration of web 2.0 tools as part of the CBSE learning initiatives.
I have also delivered the same presentation before the KVS officials at the KVS head Quarters, New Delhi.
